Influential drummer Paul Motian released The Windmills of Your Mind as an 80th-birthday present to himself (and the rest of us), with guitarist Bill Frisell, bassist Thomas Morgan, and singer Petra Haden invited to the party. Playing with a quiet fire throughout, Motian leads the ensemble in an exploration of space and dynamics. Frisell and Morgan respond brilliantly to Motian’s surging sense of time, particularly his supple brushwork. Whether adding chiming lead lines that sustain for days or creating colorful sheets of sound, Frisell brings a marvelous array of textures to the album. Meanwhile, Morgan smoothly glides around the root notes to create an elastic sense of rhythm that’s well-suited to Motian’s phrasing (this is the second time they’ve recorded together). Vocalist Haden, who appears on about half of the tracks, is the daughter of bassist Charlie Haden, with whom Motian has collaborated many times. An eclectic musician in her own right, she uses her clear and understated voice to find something new in old chestnuts like “Tennessee Waltz,” “Lover Man,” and “I Loves You Porgy.”
